@wyomama0427 I think maybe once the last person in the board/spreadsheet hits 24 weeks we could celebrate it. -snip-
21 weeks FTM and trying to figure out should delivery just be me and hubby or should I have mom in room or should I also include mother-in-law.. HELP!
I had tons of people ask me today when I'm due... followed by "oh.. pregnant during the hot sticky summer. There is nothing worse! It is not fun! You will hate it! " and I'm like.... ??? Why would you say that? I responded with "pools, sundresses and flip flops ".. because that's better than boots and a winter coat over the belly. But.... seriously. Maybe being 9 months pregnant just sucks and is uncomfortable.
@bnmort8 that decision was easy for me but every woman is so different. There will never be anyone but my husband and medical staff in with me. I don't need a show. And I do not even like texting my mom let alone have her near me while giving birth. This is #3 for us and I'm not switching things up now. LolBut if you and your husband feel he will not be enough then maybe ask. I labored with our son by myself and the nurse with no medication while having pitocin contractions. She called him and said hey get here now because your son is coming. Thank goodness he was outside because in about 7 minutes he had our son in his arms. Lol I guess the moral of that was you do you mama. Don't stress over something that doesn't need to be stressed about. Think about your feelings and your husband's.
@jena333-2 where you at girl? Your Jesus cookies are ON POINT!! Just made a batch and I'm having a hard time not eating them all. Thanks mama!!
Spoke to hubby last night and he is saying hard no on either mothers being in the room he wants it just to be us, unless I want differently of course. Thank you all for your advice it really helped me and hubby make a decision we both read all the comments and made it easy to make this decision.
I got an invite to a bridal shower. I went to look up the registry and it says they have everything they need but would appreciate gift cards to stores A, B, and C or contributions to their honeyfund (yuck). Maybe I'm old fashioned, but isn't the whole point of a shower is to shower the bride with fun gifts for married life? I don't want to sit and watch her open a bunch of gift cards or receipts from the honeyfund. "so and so paid for our brunch!" "no they didn't, you're getting cash which the site took 5% of!"
